November 28 and Dec 11, 2018
The trip in November was along the Salt River, where we were able to photograph several wild horses including a young one. Then we went into the hills north of Saguaro Lake.
This is the confluence of the Salt and Verde Rivers, one of the water supplies for Phoenix. There was a nice eddy of foam in the fore ground.
We had quite a few opportunities to photograph back lit cactus. The one below is a saguaro skeleton.

The back lit cactus also make for stunning black and white photos. These are mostly cholla cactus. You do not want to get any of these on bare skin or even your clothes or shoes!
Sunset was great for once and but don’t forget to look behind or side of you as in the third photo.
The next few photos are from the second trip which was south of Superior in Telegraph Canyon for part of the time. We also came across a real cowboy and his dogs near sunset.
